Out now on iTunes, ‘From The Shallows’ is the new album from the extremely good hands and mind of songwriter Alexander Wolfe. The album is a real triumph, typified by the layered excellence of lead track ‘Trick of the Light’ above.
If you dig the track, then we can highly recommend the rest of the album. We’ve heard it (spotify) and it’s consistently great throughout – and not always typified by the folky nature of the track above. It will also jump out at fans of pop, indie, maybe even rock…give it a try.
A Welsh band who certainly know how to create a beautiful sound all of their own, Wicket are turning heads at BBC Radio Wales with their instrumental take on ambient post-rock. Their new album, ‘A Way To Leave Their World Behind’, is a journey through the possibilities that are opened up when not relying on lyrics for structure, sometimes heavy, sometimes light – always good.
Comprising 7 epic, sprawling tracks, the album is available for stream and download from BandCamp, and we highly recommend you give it a listen – if you like what you hear, you can find them on the road in the UK in May. Visit http://projectwicket.co.uk/ for all the details. If you’re a promoter, the band are also still looking to add to this tour, so get in touch at the website.
A three piece based in London but originally from South Africa, Irvine are a band who are proud of their homeland but have decided to chase their music dreams in London.
The creators of high velocity indie rock, the trio have apparently drawn huge crowds in their home country thanks to an epic live show, one which they’re hoping will also garner them a reputation in the capital. Their music is characterised by their energy, some lovely rock melodies and tracks which don’t always follow where you might expect. It’s this willingness to change direction, as well as their raw pace, that set them apart.
